This happens to me a lot (very Celestine Prophecy).

Last night, I caught Robin Williams' (very Insomniac) guest appearence on Law & Order: SVU. Williams plays an audio engineer who hates conformity, authority, etc. After he beats the wrap, he appears on "Morning Joe" with Joe Scarborough and a sheep that represents a social awareness campaign he's launching. Ok. So then (after the show), I get on the interweb only to stuble upon the following about a graphic designer in NYC who is the creator of consume®evolution magazine, dedicated to exposing growing complacency with globalization and consumerism and offering viable alternatives to a “mass-produced” lifestyle. And wouldn't you know it, there's that friggin sheep and non-conformist rhetoric again. With that said, it's an interesting project (and good SVU minus the ending). Link via sheeplessco.com...
It's been nearly three years since I produced issue 1 of consume®, an examination of, and rant against, the marketing and business practices of corporate retail behemoths and our readiness to buy into whatever is served up. I pushed for deliberate, personal, buying habits. Now, on the event of my 30th birthday, I've launched into an experiment devised to put my money where my mouth is: become aware of my own dependence on blind consumption, and gain an understanding of the people and processes involved in making commodities available to me.

The above is only a cropped section of the original. You really have to see it full res (7,000 × 2,748 pixels) to appreciate Lawrence's genius and the apocalyptic destruction that was the California earthquake of April 18, 1906.
George Raymond Lawrence (February 24, 1868 – December 15, 1938) was a commercial photographer of northern Illinois. After years of experience building kites and balloons for aerial panoramic photography, Lawrence turned to aviation design in 1910.

This world in which we live, the universe that comprises our world.

In order to better understand them, humans have assigned to the them the concept of "size" so they may be comprehended by all.

Nevertheless, there are actually very few things that we can see with our eyes or feel with our own hands.

Our curiosity brings us to use objects visible to the naked eye as yardsticks to identify those things invisible and give them new units of measurement.

We are now capable of comparing and ranking these entities.
